Protocol (tipping, products, etc.) for a beauty school haircut

<< < (4/4)

BarensMom:
I recently was a "hair model" for one of the beauty schools here.  It took a long time, because the poor student had to check everything with her supervisor (what does "you took off my edge" mean?).  I ended up with a good, albeit shorter haircut than I'm used to, but I was prepared for that.  The cut was free, but I tipped the student $10, because she did the best she could and to give her some encouragement.

I'm curious - what does it mean?

MissRose:
The local beauty school by me does allow for tipping even though the services are reduced prices and a few hours per day where the public is welcome to come in or make appointments.  The work is done by supervised senior students, and sometimes they may have a new student or 2 observing.  I went to one to get my nails done one day then my hair done when I was in my sister's wedding a few years ago on the wedding day itself, and was pleased with the results (and got compliments too) even though I paid much less than those who went to a salon for the same services.

I always try and tip generous, maybe 30-50% of what it cost me. As for products I keep my time tested line..."I couldn't fit another product in my bathroom and the hubby already has no space".
